Torah - Haftorah and B’rit Chadashah Readings
The Torah, which is the first 5 books in the Bible: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy is broken up for study into 54 “portions” known as Parashah. There are 54 of these Scriptural portion readings during a Hebrew leap year, which has 13 months. During a regular 12-month Hebrew year, some of the smaller Parshiot readings are doubled up so that there are 50 reading portions.
Typically the entire Torah from Genesis to Deuteronomy is read in one year which ends at Sukkot/Tabernacles or Simchat Torah which immediately follows Sukkot/Tabernacles. Some people/groups have chosen to study the Torah on what is known as a Triennial Torah Cycle. This method of study is broken up into 3 smaller portions and the entire Torah is studied over a 3 year period of time.
For those interested in reading the Bible from Genesis to Revelation in a 3 year period of time, I have with the help of a brother in Yeshua/Jesus developed this 3 year reading schedule. For those interested in this Bible reading schedule, please click HERE.
Each week, you will see a Torah Parashah study presented below as well as the Haftorah, and the B’rit Chadashah for that particular Parashah. The Haftarah (or Haftorah) is a reading from the Prophets that reminds us of the Torah Parashah for that week. The word “haftarah” means “concluding portion.” The B’rit Chadashah reading is from the Apostolic Scriptures which is also known as the “Renewed Covenant” or “New Testament” that relates to the Torah Parashah being read for that particular week. Parshiot is the plural form of the Hebrew word Parashah.
